The Ottawa 67’s today announced that winger Connor Graham, whose rights were acquired last week in a trade with the Saginaw Spirit, has signed a contract to play for the team. Graham, who was drafted in the 6th round by Saginaw in 2012, chose to play in Austria last season.
“Connor is a skilled player who we believe will become a productive point-producer over his time in the OHL,” said 67’s Head Coach and General Manager Chris Byrne. “He is a 1996 birth-year player who will compete with our returning players for ice time and opportunity next season. We look forward to seeing Connor in a 67's uniform.”
Connor played with the RedBull Salzburg under-18 team last season, scoring 13 goals and adding 13 assists in 23 games before picking-up six assists in 11 games with their under-20 team.
